Description
Rather than presenting another treatise on the underlying science of perspective or the psychology of perception, this art and science book instead addresses the surprisingly broad common ground between physics and art from the personal perspective of an emeritus professor of physics who is also the former chairman of the art department at the Catholic University of America. Viewing art and physics as creative processes, J.R. Leibowitz explains how such concepts as balance and re-balance, coherence and unity, and symmetry and broken symmetry are affected by artistic vision and scientific principle, and can in turn affect them. Leibowitz reveals shared themes and understandings in each field, illustrated with paintings, sculptures, and complementary examples of physical concepts, and he parallels the strategies guiding the dabs of color and layers of images in a work of art and those guiding the assembly of physical evidence into models of the physical world.

"This is a thoroughly thought-provoking, accessible read, which not only provides some interesting views on art but gives some very nice insights into the concepts underlying physics."Observatory Magazine
